Matty Taylor is confident that Swindon Town will turn their fortunes around sooner rather than later, and he feels the trip to Accrington Stanley could prove to be an ideal starting place.
The Reds have lost their last four outings in all competitions and now face high-flying Stanley tomorrow (3pm Kick-Off), but Taylor feels it is the perfect opportunity to get back on track.
"It is vitally important," he said.
"They are one of our direct rivals, it is a game away from home and we've been in good form on the road this season, so it is an opportunity to try and get three points.
"I'm sure it will be a very difficult game.
"Accrington themselves are in good form so it is one that everybody is looking forward to.
"We're disappointed about the last four results, albeit only two of them have been in the league, and we want to win football matches - that's why I came here.
"I came here to be successful this season and the aim has always been to try and get promoted.
"We've got work to do, we're aware of that, but we work very hard on the training ground and that is vitally important. We need to keep believing in what we are doing and I'm sure results will pick up and we can start looking up."
"If you look at it, we're only a point off fifth so from that point of view we're still on target to where we want to be at the end of the season and it is not even Christmas yet.
"We've got work to do, we're aware of that, but we work very hard on the training ground and that is vitally important.
"We need to keep believing in what we are doing and I'm sure results will pick up and we can start looking up."
And Taylor has insisted that he and his team-mates won't be fazed by the facilities that await them at Accrington Stanley.
"I don't think so," he added.
"It is League Two at the end of the day and that is what you come to expect.
"It is a ground that their players probably thrive on because of the atmosphere and I've played there previously in a pre-season friendly.
"We need to go there with a positive frame of mind and prepare correctly and try and get a result."
